A friend of mine wrote this article about the Occupy Movement. It examines how Occupy General Assemblies have been infiltrated and controlled by a RAND corporation technique called Delphi. General Assemblies are good - manipulation is not.
"Combating the Delphi Technique and Occupy Infiltration"
"....At this point, it appears that Occupy is not being crippled so much by opposition from without, but by paralysis from within. It is well-known that the Occupy Wall Street movement has never been able to articulate or even agree on any set of tangible, political demands. After all, this is one of the issues that psychotic blowhards such as Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity were able to seize upon when attempting to categorize the participants as “dirty hippies” and spoiled children. A movement with no demands will increasingly lend itself to the appearance of being a temper tantrum more than true political resistance.
